Much of the country is facing below average temperatures right now and comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather really pulls the humidity out of the air, resulting in dry air that can have several negative implications for your household.
Dry air is the cause of many things, including increased static and heightened risk for sickness. Those two things may not cause the same level of concern, but they are both annoyances that can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The colder air changes the makeup of the air during the winter. Warmer air is able to retain more moisture, which is why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. This can also impact the inside of your home, such as wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.
So, what can you do?
There is more to humidification than just increasing the amount of moisture. You’ll find there is a wide variety of options when it comes to humidifiers, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over humidity levels in your house. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier circulates the moisture more reliably and in the ultimate capacity, too, which will help you reach your indoor comfort.
- Adding a humidifier can help improve skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check reduces the chances you’ll need to repair furniture, flooring or paint due to damage.
- Reduce the occurrence of shocks from static electricity in your home.
- Create a proper environment for indoor plants to grow. The appropriate humidification offers your plants the best chance at life and helps to ensure they last longer.
